DEAR EDITOR:

I was watching on the news the day before Thanksgiving at the President giving amnesty to two turkeys. OK, an American social tradition to bring a little humor to the holiday. He then proceeds to make two signs of the Cross over the pair, in imitation of Catholic blessing/absolution. If that were a Muslim sign of ritual he was mocking, the White House would be burnt as the consulate in Bengazi for Thanksgiving Day.

Mr. President, you thumb your nose at our teachings by forcing us to provide contraception and abortion in our health insurance, then you mock our rituals by performing them over turkeys. What’s next? This only proves to me and to the rest of the country your lack of respect for, and persecution of, faith at work in this country.

When you took the oath of office four years ago, you promised to “preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States so help me God.” Did you mean the whole constitution, or just what you pick and choose? Remember, this was before God. I suggest you think about this on Jan. 20.

Supporting each other

The carpeting came from one store; the furniture another; and the appliances yet another.

When my father owned his business, he made it a practice to shop locally and support those who supported his business.

It was a good practice and still is today.

I know it sometimes is more attractive to leave Delphos to shop and there are certain things that just aren’t available here. But for the most part, we have a variety of stores from which to choose our goods.

 
Farewell Apple Fruit Pies

Two lonely little Hostess Apple Fruit Pies fill D3 in the snack machine on the second floor of The Herald building.

On Friday, Hostess announced it would close after decades of providing beloved snacks to young and old alike.

No more Twinkies, CupCakes, Ding Dongs, Ho-Hos, Struessel Cakes, Suzy Qs, Fruit Pies, Donettes, Zingers or Coffee Cakes.

No more soft, moist cake with cream filling of perfect consistency. No more smooth, melty fudge over chocolate cake. No more Coffee Cake loaded with brown sugar and cinnamon. No more fruit pies with sweet, juicy bits of apple in a smooth filling. No more CupCakes with the 8 perfect loops on the top.

How did this happen? How could something that has been a part of my life forever just go away?

Well, maybe not gone entirely. Rumor has it some other company may pick up a few of Hostess’ offering.

Hostess is blaming the company’s demise on unreasonable union workers. The workers say Hostess had already filed for bankruptcy and they had given some concessions and the money from those was to be plowed back into the company. Workers say it never happened. Top management was given 80-percent raises while the company was still in bankruptcy. Blah, blah, blah.

 
Creepin’ up

Where has the year gone? It’s already November.

To many people’s surprise, we’ve already had a Christmas story in the paper.

I’m sure with the economy, the Delphos Community Christmas Project will need every bit of time they have to pull together a nice holiday for those who need a little boost.

It’s tough out there and every penny will count.

It will be that way for many of us, I fear. Most of us are fortunate and have jobs. It may not be the one we want or need but a job none the less.

DEAR EDITOR:
Having voted since the election of Franklin Roosevelt, I have never seen such a disparity between the rural voters and the big city voters. Three-fourths of Putnam County voted for Romney. Also everywhere we drove in Ohio and part of Michigan the Romney signs outnumbered the Obama signs by at least ten to one.
It makes me happy to know that such a large percentage of the rural area voted Christian values, but sad that so many Ohio voters did not. Did they not know the intrinsic evils that they were buying into or was there that much voter fraud?
